Subject: Uncredited Stock Music
The music here is by Jack Shaindlin. The piece at 5:12 when he is in the broker's office and the map is shown is called 'Walking Briskly.'

The voices are by Marvin Miller.

Subject: And then, you lose your money.
Once again, John Sutherland has taken the Stock Exchange and made an amusing, yet highly simplified (which is great for me!) film about how the Stock Exchange works. Using Mr. Everyday Businessman, the film shows how, even with an investment of only 40 dollars a month, you can go into what was known as a Monthly Investment Plan and watch your money being put to work! Even when the stocks go down, you can make money!! Its all a little too rosey, and sort of gets confusing when the guy goes on his car ride

Oh yeah, and this film is in pretty banged up shape. Scratches throughout, lots of splices too.

I love this kind of animation, this age animation inspire me. Maybe the minimalism of the backgrounds and the complexity of full animation is a technique due to die.

Sorry for my english... :)


Many people, like Mr. Finchley, the hero of this film, may have wondered how to go about owning a share of American business, or about the new "pay-as-you-go" Monthly Investment Plan. Or, perhaps they'd just like to know more about how the stock market works -- about market opportunities and risks, stocks, bonds and dividends. If so, they will find the adventures of Fred Finchley as one of the best ways to find out what goes on at the Stock Exchange. Mr. Finchley is a likeable, average sort of fellow. His wife calls him "Fred" ... and his boss calls him "FINCHLEEEEEY!" -- like that! He has a comfortable, well-equipped house in an attractive suburb ... insurance (just in case) ... and a savings account for emergencies. But there was never anything extra left over for those special dreams until one day, Mr. Finchley's boss bellowed "FINCHLEEEEEY!" even louder than usual. And when Mr. Finchley returned from his employer's office -- with a cigar and a slightly dazed look on his face -- his salary was $60 fatter every month! What Mr. Finchley did with his extra $60, the perils of his ventures in "Utopium, Unlimited," and how he finally caught on to a sensible way to become the man of his dreams is the essence of this sparkling cartoon story of WORKING DOLLARS. [Business Screen, Vol. 17, No. 5, 1956]
